This powerful fictional film is based on the true-life story of Jean-Marie Lustiger, who, born of Polish Jews, joined the Catholic priesthood and was appointed Archbishop of Paris. There, he openly celebrated his dual identity as a “Catholic Jew, ” bringing him friends and enemies from both religions. Lustiger’s split allegiance is tested to the core when a group of Carmelite nuns decide to build a monastery on the edge of Auschwitz. Where will Lustiger stand?
